Congregation Shaarey Zedek will be hosting a program for families with young children who do not already belong to a synagogue on February 7. The program, “A Taste of Judaism – Family Style,” is designed for families with children up to age six years old, where at least one parent is Jewish.

In the past, our congregation has offered a three-week adult “Taste of Judaism” course, and each year I provide an adult course in Introduction to Judaism, but this is the first time we are offering this family-style program.

The program will be presented on Saturday morning, February 7, at 9:30 am at the synagogue, located at 1924 Coolidge Road in East Lansing. Children and adults who attend will learn about the Sabbath. At the conclusion of the morning program, the group will join with synagogue members in a Tot Shabbat service and lunch.

The program is free and open to all unaffiliated families in the community. Registration is required. For further information, or to register, please contact me by email at rabbibigman@shaareyzedek.com or telephone me at 351-3570, ext. 2.
